T1TE SCTR ANTON . TRIBUNE MONDAY MOItNTNCr, DECEMBER 10, 1894. CHURCH SERIES OF DAY '''' Rev. G. Vatkins Denounces Church . Fuirs and Festivals. iiB "SAYS THEY ARE DEBASING llasJfolBespcct for Those Who Will Only Contrlbuto to Churches Through These Affulrs-Torms Them Disciples of Loaves and Fishes. Rev. W. G. Watkins preached a ser mon at the North Main Avenue Bap tist church last night upon "Church Amusements.", The reverend gentle man bused his discourse on John 11. 13-18, and an initerestliiK Introduction described the Journey of Christ from Curm. to Jerusalem and his visit to the Feast of Passover. He then drew a vivid picture of the scenes of baiter Biid selling of beasts which desecrated the holy temple, and how Christ cleared out th? venders and denounced them by saying: "Ma,ke not my father's house a house of merchandise," and applied the Illustration to the proceedings of the present day and said: "In the mind of any one who believes th Bible there can be no doubt as to what Jesus did. The question is this, "Which of these affairs, if any, that ar held for amusement and money getting- In pur churches are In nature like the business which Christ condemned and cast out? I believe many of them ore. The Chance Klctnent. "I ask any of you to show me the difference' between church chances and the wheel of fortune as It is practised by. the fakir or In the gambling den. Kvery time you pay 10 cents to guess what Is in the cuke, or buy a ticket with a number on It, with the expecta tion of 'getting the lucky number that will bring you the prize, you take your chances like' the man at the wheel or at the card table. Only one but of the whole number can be successful, all the others paying money on expectations that will never be realized. The church and civil laws condemn gambling in the world. What then makes It right for the church H-self to gamble? I need not take time to enumerate the fool ish and disgusting forms of chance work which churches practice. If Jesus Christ should come he would certainly cast out from our church uffalis the element of chance. "Of the business enterprises In the church, I believe most would be con demned. I know from observation that many of them practice fraud. Seldom, If ever, are they conducted on true business principles. Who is there so Innocent as to go to a church festival expecting to get as much Ice cream for 10 cents as In an Ice cream parlor? Gospel measure Is brimful, pressed down and running over; but instead of giving Gospel measure, the church fes lval goes far below the standard of the world's measure, otherwise there would be too little money in it. Of course, neonle will say it Is for the church, and on that principle are Avllllng to pay 10 cents for hnlf-a-plate. Be It so, then at best It is but half charity and the other half Is fraud. Disciples of Loaves and Fishes. "Moreover, when an honest attempt Is made to conduct the affairs on right principles It evinces gross carnal tend encies, for it means that those from whom the church cannot eke money except in lieu of a dinner or supper are Justly entitled to the opprobrium vvhlcn -V Christ hurled at nhoae of old, who roi' lowed him simply because he fed them with bread and fish, whoever since have been stigmatized as 'disciples of loaves and fishes.' "These affairs are also a deviation from the original and divinely appoint ed method of supplying the cause of God, In the old Testament God called upon the people to bring In their tithes In the new Testament every one lay by him in store as God has prospered him Those represent the sources of the church's revenue, and they indicate di rect and free-will offerings and not money gotten by barter. , It will not do to say that this business is done for aiding the church or is it Justified on the principle that the end Justifies the means. . "Finally these affairs are subvertlvc of the very aim and purpose of the Christian church. They diminish the spirituality of every church that pro motes them, they lower the standard of morality, they cripple the church In its usefulness, and destroy its useful ness for good in the community. Debasing and Corrupting. "I would not be austere, I would not deprive young people of all pleasure, but I do believe that these affairs In churches are debasing and corrupting, and that there ore other means and ex ercises which the church may use for the culture, development and profit of Its young people and the enlargement of Its own life. AT ST. PETER'S CATHEDRAL Close of One Mission and the Opening of Another. With a reception to the members of the Blessed Virgin'8 sodnlity the young ladles' mission of the cathedral ended last night, and the mission for the female members of the congregation was bogun. Father. Bucholtz left on i the midnight' train for Waterbury, 1 Conn., to "open a mission there. During the week Father O'Reilly will conduct the services, assisted by local priests. The dally order of exercises will be masses at 6.30, 1 and 8 a. m. Stations of the cross after last mass each morn ing, confesslonsmornlng and afternoon. and a sermon each evening at i.su. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Father Bucholtz preached to the women of the parish upon a general subject. Their duty is, he said, to say their dally morning and evening prayers, attend all religious services at the church, hear mass regularly and go to confessions and communion at the proper seasons of the year. The speaker took up the subject of the sac rament of matrimony and said that a prerequisite essential to happiness be tween man and wife is the piety of the latter. The husband was established by God to rule over the household and the wife must be obedient. Cleanliness tidiness and habits opposed to extrava gance are qualities in a woman' that makes the husband love her and brings happiness to the household. The sin of unfaithfulness Is the most atrocious act that a wife can commit, and many temptations surround a married woman. If she be truly rellgous God will give her grace to withstand all Mt these temptations. Woe to the parents that do not exercise a proper care over their children, because on the last day God will demand an account of parents for the lives of their offspring. Pee that they beget a love for work, attend to their education, send them to school. and above all other things watch over their religious teachings. After the fiermon Father Bucholtz pronounced benediction .and large numbers op proached the sanctuary rail and were Invested with the scapular. Religious articles were blessed. Reception of the Sodality. The reception In. the. evening opened with the singing of the hymn, "All Hail Our Mother and Dear Queen," by the sodallslts. After the Venl, Creator, Father Bucholtz preached the sermon, the subject being, "The Blessed Virgin and the Sodality." The speaker re ferred to the pure holy life of Mary, she was always a virgin and never committed any sin. She s upheld to the members of the sodality because she is the mother of our Redeemer. She is the type of Christian morals and an extraordinary means of grace. Catho lics do not worship Mary but they im plore her Intercession because her posi tion in heaven as the mother of the Trinity, since she Is the mother of the second Person, enables her to bestow favors which God grants through her. She Is the model of Christian morality and Bhould be imitated. She is not an ordinary means of grace, such as the sacraments, but her bounteous stores of merciful intercession rendur her an object that Is it worth our while to honor. The speaker went on and de scribed the life of Mary, her humility above nil, and her deeply religious con duct on this world. God Is. pleased to Bee women imitate her und Is most generous to those who ore devoted to the mother of His only Divine Son, The hymn, "Hull Holy Virgin," wn3 sung and next came the reception of the postulants, 'over sixty of them. This was a most Impressive ceremony as they filed to the altar rail and re ceived the badge of the sodullty. Be sides the postulunts nearly eighty mem bers were udmitted to full membership in the society. They received their badgus and the bleBtslng of the priest. Following the reception the hymn, There Is No Heart Like Thine Dear Lord," was sung. Miss Mary Canavan played the accompaniment , on the organ. Then came benediction of the blessed Bucramcnt, the chanting of the Te Deum and. blessing of religious ar ticles. HERO KING OF SWEDEN. Ills Three Hundredth Anniversary Cele brated by Lutherans. Unusual Interest was attached to the services at the Trinity English Lu theran church yesterday when the three hundreth anniversary of the birth of Gustavas Adolphus, the hero king of faweeden, who died In defense of Pro testantism, was celebrated. In the evening at the conclusion of evening prayer Rev. E. L. Miller, pas tor, Introduced Major Everett Warren. who delivered an excellent address ap propriate to the occasion, during the course of which he remarked that the occcaslon formed the second time he had the pleasure of worshiping with the Lutherans, the first being In July last when touring through Switzer land. . 'Gustavus Adolphus," he said, "was a greater man from an historical nolnt of view than Martin Luther. Luther persevered and protested against the papal supremacy but Gustavus Adols phus gave his life for the cause for which he worked. It was not possible at this day to appreciate the dllllculties which Adolphus encountered unless we nau a Knowiedeg of his environments. What Luther Taught. "Luther's ideas provoke discussion anu it-avas made a mutter of Btate bust ness to crush them out. Luther taught not oniy justification by faith, the su perlorlty of the Scriptures, but the ngnt or private Judgment. When Ferdinand II. started a revolution im agine, if you can, the monastic des potlsm, and the taking from . Indl viciuais the right to examine the Sci-Id. lures ror themselves; Imagine the mayor of this city Issuing an edict to tune your worship away from you. and Imagine, further, that by the name edict your rector were carried and placed as a target at the court house for the constabulary. You regard It as outside the pale of possibility. Imagine tnese things and you have a faint con ception of the days of Martin Luther in the dawning of the Seventeenth cen tury." Major Warren then described with much eloquence the savage cruelty of Wallansteln, who was employed by 1? rederlck II. to secure the prisoners, and take to himself the booty and to be responsible to no one, so long aa he succeeded In crushing out the new ideas; and how Count Mansfield lost his life as a martyr in the massacre, The church of Luther's followers be came a by-word and In this state of af fairs no one Imagined that In 1629 a man who would secure the right of Individual liberty would come from ice bound Sweden, a place less In area than the state of Michigan. But Sweden furnished the Christian soldier of Eur ope, whose only parallel In history was General Oliver O. Howard, who saved the day at Gettysburg. Services of the Hero King. Gustavas Adolphus perceived what was being done by Ferdinand II. in South Germany; bade good-bye to his people and entered his new career, to rescue the persecuted Protestants. Hearing of his arrival, Ferdinand en deavored to secure thealdof Wallansteln once more, but, being unsuccessful, se cured one as bloodthirsty and who was responsible for the destruction of 40,000 persons without excuse, Justification or cause, except that they worshiped God In a manner different from that there tofore in vogue. The speaker then referred to the ser vices of Gustavas Adolphus and that God always raiised great men in times of emergency to save His people and His Gospel, as with the Israelites In the days of old. Adolphus had aided and made the Reformation possible in England, had made It possible for the COULD HARDLY BREATHE, Catarrh of the Nose, Throat and Stomach Life Made Miserable by Headaches, Pain and Cough. Lldu McCandless, 1230 South Thlrtv fifth street, Philadelphia, In conversa tion with a reporter, said: "I had very bad case of catarrh of the nose. throat and stomach, with frequent headaches, pain under the shoulder blades and a horrible rough. I hud to keep my mouth constantly open day and night to breathe, and felt as miser able as one possibly could. I was ad vised to try Munyon's Catarrh Cure. am happy to say that from the berln nlng 1 felt relieved and continued to grow better until now I am entirely well. I am so thankful that this re markable remedy was ever discovered, and hope others will take advantage of my experience. Have you catarrh? Are you wllllni to Investigate a treatment that curm Catarrh by removing the cause? if so ask your druggist for a 25 cent bottle of Munyon s uaiarrn uure ana a 25 cent bottle of Catarrh Tablets. The Catarrh Cure will eradicate the disease from the system, and the Tablets will cleanse and heal the afflicted parts and restore them to a natural and healthful condl tlon. Munyon's Homoeopathic Home Rem edy company, of Philadelphia, nut up specifics for nearly every disease, which are sold by all druggists, mostly tor 2o cents a uoiue. Puritans to come to this country, made protestantism a success, and made a revolution In the history of the world. His name was on the lips of every boy In the Fatherland of Germany and it was not surprising that they appreciat ed the life and services of Gustavas Adolphus. RESCUE MISSION WORK. A Plea Made for Its Continuance in This City. Yesterday largely attended meetings were held In the city to further the work of the Rescue mission on Frank lin avenue. In the morning Samuel F. Jones, of St. Stephen's Episcopal mis sion, Boston, and others addressed a large audience at Penn Avenue Baptist church and in the evening Mr. Jones spoke at the Elm Park church, where he related his drunken career and his conversion through the means of the Rescue mission In Naw York city. He concluded by making an eloquent ap peal on behalf of the local mission in which he said: "It rests with this congregation if this little lighthouse shall continue to shine out a flight or not. It costs $500 a year for a grog ahop, It only costs $3,600 to conduct the mission, and yet there la in this city between licensed and unli censed places, at least 400 gin shops, open every night, with the possible ex ception of Sundays. It Is the only lighthouse in the midst of all, and Its doors have boen open since Its organiza tion without a single exception. It costs as much as four gin mills and it is for you Christian men and women to decide whether It shall continue to be open. Superintendent Sanborn said that the work of (he mission had never been more flourishing than during the past month. Twenty-five thousand people had attended thirty-four services and within five minutes walk there were 100 families who never attended church and who they hoped to peach, J. A. Lansing made an address in which he suggested that the First Pres byterian church, Second Presbyterian church, Elm Park church and Penn Avenue Baptist church should each con tribute JitOO toward the expenses of the coming year. A meeting of the committee and friends of the mission will be held this evening to decide whether the mission shall be continued after Jan. 1 and a few facts may be of timely assistance. Since the organisation of the 'mission In January, 1893, 1,134 meetings Jiuve been held with an attendance of 100,602; 386 have professed conversion and free beds have been furnished to 2,643 per sons.

NEW BlILDIXG TO BE ERECTED Present Women's Ward Altogether Unfit for Purpose-It Will Be Replaced and Later an Administration Build ing Is to Bo Erected. The State Board of Charities at Us recent session decided to recommend that the legislature of this state appro priate $75,000 to the Lackawanna hos pital. If this amount is allowed by the law makers, and It is altogether prob able that It will be, an addition to the hospital will be constructed as soon as the appropriation Is received. Speak ing of the plans of the hospital authori ties with regard to a new building James Dickson, president of the board of directors, said yesterday: 'The new building will be a women's ward and will be erected on the north erly side of the present old building, after which the old building will be de molished and an administration wing erected on the site between the two wards of the hospital." Speaking of the present state of the hospital, Mr. Dickson pointed out that the "women's ward had been overcrowded for two years, and that twenty-seven appli cants for admisson had to be refused lust month. At present two cots are used rather than refuse the cases. The present women's ward is one of the oldest buildings in the city and en tirely unBuitcd for the purpose, as it Is continually getting out of repair, ren deling the place uncomfortable for pa Merits and nurses; - No Accommodations for Nurses. "There is no accommodation for nurses In the building," continued Mr. Dickson, "and we are compelled to send them elsewhere. Thanks tothe liberality of the Delaware and Hudson company they are quartered at present in the old office building at the foot of Franklin avenue. The arrangement Is detri mental to the success of the hospital as the nurses should always be at hand. "Not only are we In want of an ad ministration building, but we have no ward for contagious diseases, cases of delirium tremens and others for which an isolated ward Is essential. The hos pltal also needs a suitable place for stabling horses, as at present we are compelled to pay $2 each time the am bulance Is called out. Citizens of Scran- ton can from this estimate to some ex tent the disadvantages we are working under and the difficulties that have to be encountered dally." Incidentally Mr. Dickson remarked that the general public is not aware of the enormous amount of work accom plished In the hospital. During the past twelve months pa tients had been treated on a total of 18,000 days, adding together the number of days devoted to each patient. This had been accomplished at a cost of less than $1 per day per patient. In add! tlon to this a large number of outdoor patients had been attended to. , Taking the number of In-patients the ration of cost, he believed, would be found lower than any other similar institution In the state. Needs of the Hospital. The management of the hospital, he said, had been endeavoring to Unpress upon me citizens mm mey were con statitly In need of articles of every description, such as old clothing, linen furniture and, added the president, "In fact, there is hardly anything but would be thankfully received. Any arti cle we receive Is acceptable and can be utilized. When the time comes to carry out the alterations, we have figured the matter so moderately that we must ask the aid of our friends in completing the structure, and Scranton will then, we hope, have one of the best emergency hospitals In the state. BOARD OF CHARITIES WORK. Colonel Boles Outlines What Was Done at the Kcccnt Meeting. Colonel II. M.'Boles, who attended the recent meeting of the State Board of Charities, of which he is a member yesterday outlined the work done by the board for a Tribune reporter. He said that applications had been re celved for state aid from 300 institutions and that the board would ask the legls lature to make appropriations to churl ties amounting to $0,000,000. One great feature during the hearing of the cases was the question of ac commodatlon for the Insane. The past year showed a great Increase in the number of insane, 530 persons having been placed in various institutions as compared with the average annual in crease of 250. This, the colonel pre sumed, could to some extent, be ac counted for by the depression In trade and the consequent Inability of people to maintain their Insane relatives. The question of the proper detention o criminal and dangerous lunatics had absorbed some portion of the time and a new hospital would, In all probability be erected In a central part of the state and another hospital for the chronic insane will be erected in the western end of the state. Thirty-three Insane criminal prisoners escaped, during the lust three years because detained In IT'S A MILLSTONE About a young man s neat w do sufferer from ner vous exhaustion, ner vous debility, unpair ed memory, low spirits, irritable tem per, and the thousand and one derangements of mind ana body mat result, irons. unnatural, pernicious habits, contracted through umoranoe.
